Scapegrace Black Gin is the world’s first natural black gin, hand-crafted in New Zealand using the specific organic botanicals of aronia berry, saffron, pineapple, butterfly pea and sweet potato, to produce a very distinct and kinda ominous black hue, that changes its colour when mixed.
This incredible mix of science and booze-making knowledge is so cool, because there’s only one recipe that results in a naturally black gin.
